I've missed the poll! What's going on?
I would have gone for 'Wearin That Loved On Look'. The reason? Well, this was one of the later albums in my collection. The reason being when I got it (83/84 I think), it was extremely difficult to get hold of (deleted?). Anyway, when I finally got my hands on it I was familiar with Ghetto/Any Day Now and Gentle on My Mind ... the rest were all new to me. I had read the review of the tracks in Robert Matthew Walker's book prior to hearing them so my anticipation was fever pitch. When I eventually played it and the opening bars of WTLOL came out I was taken aback!! It was not only the quality of Elvis' delivery but also the quality of the material. I would have liked the album by anyone because the material was so strong (the Tillotson number being the weak link IMO). I could only imagine how the fans who got to hear it upon iits release felt after a dire decade. I still feel to this day that WTLOL was crying out for single release! After that, almost every track was a winner (sans Tillotson IMO
). It has lost none of its power to this day. Elvis' finest album? For me ... yes!
